What’s typically included in a construction set?
We include: floor plans; dimensioned plans indicating the layout of rooms, walls, doors, and windows; a roof plan; exterior and interior elevations; electrical plan; schedules; and more.
What are the basic principles of layout?
Basic design principles include: balance, space efficiency, shape, and future buildout.
What are the most common factors that are considered when designing a home?
We consider move-in timeframe; budget; house placement; special needs and requests; functional spaces; priorities (e.g., size or amenities); and lifestyle in 5 or 10 years.
What is the estimated timeline for my project?
We typically have a two-week turn around between reviews. There are two reviews for floor plans and two reviews for front elevations before finalizing for a full construction set. Approximate time from start to finish is up to three months.
Where are you able to meet?
We offer video conferencing and in-person meetings located in our Katy, TX office.
